Calculating a Value Based Off a Subtotal

Calculating a Value Based Off a Subtotal

Calculating a Value Based Off a Subtotal

(OP)
I am using Developer Studio 714 and I am using SUM in my report to get the following report:

MDL     MTD    YTD    DAYS      DAYS
        SALES  SALES  IN_STOCK  2RETAIL  MTD_VOLUME
BMW325      2   15      2509        886       62.87
BMW330      2    4       471        183       12.11
BMW525      1    6      1080        301       25.57

*SUBTOTALS  5   49     

The MTD_VOLUME column should be calculated as such:
(DAYS_IN_STOCK + DAY2RETAIL) / (SUBTOTAL OF MTDSALE + SUBTOTAL OF YTD SALES)

Currently, my report is dividing at the detail line level.
How can I do this?

Thanks,

RE: Calculating a Value Based Off a Subtotal

How is the MTD_VOLUME being calculated at the detail level? If it's the same calculation,then you should do the detail calculations with a COMPUTE, and use SUMMARIZE instead of SUBTOTAL.

Yes, it's being calculated at the detail level.
I will try that...thank you.

Thanks,
